What do you do at Blackbird?
I find and back Aotearoa's most ambitious founders who solve truly painful problems.
What did you do before Blackbird?
I've taken a random walk through finance. Corporate Banking > Corporate Development & Strategy > Venture Capital. Most recently I worked for NZ Growth Capital Partners investing in VC funds (Blackbird included!) and seed stage companies.
What do you believe that others do not?
Naivety is a strength. To solve unreasonably challenging problems and build generational companies it helps to be naive about 1) just how hard it will be; and 2) how people have tried to solve that problem before them.
